The router table top was made from 3/4” chipboard and 1/4” MDF, which a ran 2 different size grooves in each of them which creates a t-track which i can attach feather boards too. and the fence has 2 sliding fences, the cabinet was made entirely from recycled laminate chipboard i found in my attic from an old entertainment centre, It has 3 drawers on 1 side, 2 of them hold router bits, on the other side there are 3 standard drawers and i will be putting a switch in that gap soon. On the bottom there are 3 gaps to hold power tools. But the unique thing about this router table is the router lift. Its lifted by a car jack which i have screwed a box on to to grip the router and the car jack is screwed into the bottom. You need a plunge router for this to work. It works great and runs smoothly and easily. The important thing is to make sure the jack is directly under your router or else it will try and lift your router table top. oh and its on casters.
